Xew Yokk, May 20. The journey of the
Infanta Kulalie from Washington to New
Vork was without special incident. The
hour of the depart
ure of the train
was not generally
at Baltimore and
were some gather

suite got into a

then both carriages were driven down
to the wharf, to where the steamboat
General Slocum was moored. The Infan
ta alighted from the carriage, and walked
nlong a carpeted way to the General
Saluted by the Warships.
When the Infanta's party and the mem
be"S of the committee had boarded the
eteamlioat the Spanish warship Infanta Isa
bel, that had anchored near by, liegan firing
a national salute of twenty-one guns, at
the same time manning her yards and pa
rading marines on the quarter deck. Dur
ing the sail up the river the party received
an ovation, salutes being exchanged with
hundreds of river craft. OfT Thirty-fourth
street the Brazilian men-of-war Republics
and Aquidebann were passed and both
vessels were beautifully dressed with flags
and as the General Slocum steamed by the
yards of the warships were manned. A
short distance further up lay the Newark
and Philadelphia of the American navy,
and both ships manned the yards and fired
salutes of twenty-one guns.
An Ovation in the City.
When the party landed, escorted by Cav
alry troop A, they proceeded along Thirty
fourth street to Fifth avenue and to the
hotel Savoy. There was an ovation along
the entire route. Mayor Gilroy and George
It. McClellan, president of the board of al
dermen, waited at the entrance to receive
the city's guest. As the carriage stopped,
Gen. Porter introduced Mayor Gilroy to
the Infanta, and the mayor introduced Mr.
McClellan as the president of the munici
pal council. The princess was then es
corted by the mayor to the reception room.
The carpet laid beneath the canopy at the
hotel entrance was strewn with flowers,
and after the party had passed the crowd
grabbed every pedal of broken flower that
the princess had crushed beneath her pretty
Mayor Ciilroy's Welcoming Address.
Arriving at the reception room Mnyor
Gilroy extended a welcome to the princess
and party, and tendered them the freedom
of the city; told them that the programme
could be changed to suit, their convenience,
and assured her royal highness that this
country felt it a great honor to welcome
her to its shores. The princess replied very
quietly with a marked accent: "I am very
pleased at the graciousness of the recep
tion, and can find nothing to say except to
In the evening the Spanish colony held
a torchlight procession and serenaded the
Infanta. Today a trip was taken t ; Ward's,
Blackwell's and Kamli-ll's islands. The

preparations have been made therefor.
THE JOURNALISTIC GATHERING.
Joo Howard MnUes an Address on "Jour
nalism Compared" Oilier l-'eattures.
ClllCAliO, May SO. The visiting journal
ists continued their sessions in the hall of
Columbus, when some very interesting pa
pers were read. Joe Howard, Jr., o Xew
York, opened the programme with a a dis
sertation on "Journalism Compared." The
odore Stanton, of Paris, whose contribu
tions to current literature are so well and
JOSEPH I1UWAIID. ja.
favorably known, spoke of "The European
Cable Service and the American Press."
Italy was represented in the person of Sig.
V. Zeggio, whose theme was "The Public
Press of Italy." Mrs. J. T. Sutherland's
address related to "Dramatic and Musical
Criticism," and the closing paper was
"The Public Press and the World's Colum
bian Exposition" by Major Moses P. Han
dy, of Chicago.
To the practicalprinter the discussions in
the meetings of the publishers will be
probably the most interesting of the pro
ceedings of the congress. One of the topics
discussed was the size of the Sunday news
papers, and it was asked whether it should
be sold by the pound. It should also be
asked whether itshould not be carried to
Its points ot aelivery by a locomotive. Any
one who has seeu the newsboys of Chicago
early Sunday morning staggering along
under the weight of piles of papers almost
as tall as themselves will see the point of
this question. It was all laid to the public
by those who talked it over the public
wanted the big papers and the boys must
continue to pntf and perspire.
The typesetting machine was brought up
again, and an argument against it was
that its tendency in cheapening productiou
would increase size, and white paper cost
money. No conclusion wtis reached, and
the discussion branched off to the makeup.
The thrusting of advertising matter into
the reading columns was not approved,
Although how to get out of it was a ques
tion not a us wired.
The publishers were given a special re
ception at the Chicago Press club at night.
A.t the end of that function the visitors
Kerc treated to a rare entertainmeut, con
jisting of a number of Oriental and Euro
pean features i f the Midway Plaisance.
This afternoon the Editorial association
has Washington hall and is giving a pro
gramme of addresses which will close with
a go-as-you-please discussion. The ques-
tion whether the daily press colors its
news too highly was considered by John
. Scleicher, of Xew York, and "Reck
lessness in Journalism" was touched up by
John H. Stoll, of Indiana. In hall 7 the
Trade Press congress met and the discus
sions were about the uses and develop
ment of the trade journal.
SUNDAY OPENING SITUATION.
The Closers Uet Another ItaoUsot What
Olney Will J.
Chicago, May "JO. Sunday closing, iu
so far as the National commission is con
cerned, has been knocked out in the final
bout Tiefore that body. Commissioner
Hundley, of Alabama, who has been as
sisting Massey iu the Sunday closing move
meut.and who is a member of the judiciary
committee, brought the matter up upon
what he called "unfinished business." He
said the minority report was substituted
for the majority the other day simply for
action and in the order of business, but it
did not dispose of the report providing for
the closing of the gates on Sunday. Hund
ley made a strong argument and his law
points were well taken, but from common
jage and custom the chair thought there
tvas no unfinished business before the com
mission. Hundley persisted, however, in pushing
the matter, and was only b-?aten on a point
of "no quorum." This effectually Fettles
t he national commission's opposition to the
Sunday fair, as there is no likelihood of a
quorum being obtained before July 1.
When District Attorney Milchrist returns
from Washington there is every probability
that he will file a bill in the United States
circuit court to restrain the World's fair
directory from opening the gates on Sun
day. The matter will then rest entirely
with the court to issue or withhold a writ.
It is within the range of possibility that
Chief Justice Fuller may decide to sit in
the case, as he will arrive iu this city early
According to dispatches from Washing
ton the attorney general gave explicit in
structions to Attorney Milchrist to present
the matter of the openine of the World's
fair on Sunday to the federal courts in
case he found on his return to Chicago
that the commission adhered to its an-
KOTTVIA IJT GOVEKNMFNT rUTLPrXG.
nounced purpose of opening the gates on
Sunday next. This is understood to be
in line with a general policy adopted by
the administration. Attorney General Ol
ney being seen unhesitatingly confirmed
the statement as to the nature of the in
structions he had given the district attor
ney and as to the determination of his de
partment to Mke legal measures to "pre
vent the lawof congress being violated."
When Sabbatarian Haer, of Boston, went
to see Olney the latter gave him distinctly
to understand that "the goverment would
see that the law was enforced in case the
national commission should at any time
decide to open on Sunday." The interest
which the official announcement. of the at
torney general's instructions has evoked
has rather dwarfed the significance of the
resolutions adopted by the Presbyterian
general assembly at Washington to ap
point a committee to wait upon Secretary
Carlisle to ask him to treat the exposition
as a bonded warehouse and to order it
closed on Sunday as all other bonded
warehouses are. Treasury officials en
trusted with the enforcement of customs
laws see obvious difficulties in the way of
carrying out this programme.
There is no way, they say, in which the
exposition buildings containing bonded ex
hibits could be closed like bonded ware
houses, except by placing locks upon them.
Secretary Spaulding, who baa charge of cus
toms matters, said that this would be
obviously impracticable, as the
foreign exhibits and exhibits of
American goods were in many instances
side by side. Moreover, the responsibility
for the safe keeping of the foreign bonded
goods was imposed upon the local direc
tory. Consequently the point made that
the buildings were in the same category as
bonded warehouses. Secretary Spaulding
said does not hold good.
Austria's contribution to the fine art
display was opened to the public during
the afternoon. The crimson and gold cur
tains held by massive cord were drawn
aside from the entrances to the salons over
which the word "Austria" was painted in
letters of gold, and the aisles were quickly
filled with an admiring throng of picture
lovers. The Austrian exhibit is not ex
tensive, occupying only three salons, but it
has been carefully selected, and some are
great works of art.
Even a casual observers who passes
through the departmental and foreign
omniums or waiiis past incomplete struct
ures in different pu ts of the grounds can
not help noticing that much of the delay
iu completing pavilions and installation of
exhibits is caused by the workmen who
are employed by the various commissions.
It seems as though every man wants to
make his job last until the end of October.
The formal opening of the Electricity
building, which was announced for Satur
day night, will uot be given until Thurs
day of next week. At that time all exhib
its will be in place. The feature of the
first "open evening"" iu this building will
be the the unveiling of the Tower of Light,
erected by the General Electric company.
The paid admissions to the fair for the
day were -'S, 174.
Two Women and a Iog Fight.
WlLKEsUAKHK, Pa., May 26. Mrs. Lucy
Blackwood and Mrs. J. Mollnger, of Ever
dale, this cimntj, have had an exciting ex
perience. Their husbands are patrons of
the dog pit. Each man had a dog in train
ing fur a big battle which was to have been
fought on Decoration Day. The women
thought it would be a good idea to gHe the
bulls a preliminary battle. Accordingly
the two dugs were brought into Mrs. Mol
nuer's parlor. A savage fight occurred.
Iiotli l he women fainted at the sight. The
ilogs destroyed all the furniture. The bus
b inds of the woun-:i were out of town at
ibe tiniL'. and lilackwcxl's dog was killed.
